Gritman Medical Center recently purchased a HoverJack Air Patient Lift and HoverMatt Air Transfer System, allowing for even safer and more comfortable patient transfer.
This simple yet revolutionary technology allows caregivers to safely lift patients without gathering a lift team. Recognized as the industry standard for safe patient lifting, the HoverJack Air Patient Lift and HoverMatt Air transfer system reduces skin shear and bruising, is radiolucent and MRI compatible and is able to support up to 1200 lbs. to accommodate most patients.
The HoverJack consists of four chambers that are inflated sequentially to lift patients from the floor to bed or stretcher height in a supine position, maximizing patient comfort and minimizing the risk of injury to both patient and caregivers. Once the HoverJack lift is inflated, the HoverMatt air transfer mattress can be used with the same air supply unit for safe and easy lateral patient transfer to a bed or stretcher.
This technology is ideal for bariatric and geriatric patients, or those with limited mobility.
